Grammy Award winner and Hall of Famer, GLORIA GAYNOR was born on the 7th of September 1949 in Newark, N.J. and sang as young girl in her school choir, mixed chorus and the her school’s girl glee club. While she knew she one day wanted to have a career in music, GLORIA GAYNOR still went to school with the aim of having something to fall back on and studied beauty and business courses.
In 1978 GLORIA GAYNOR released her 6th studio album, ‘LOVE TRACKS’ on Polydor Records, now fully remastered and repackaged by BBR!
‘LOVE TRACKS’ features some of the best musicians of the time including Paulinho Da Costa on percussion and Wah Wah Watson on guitar while production duties were left in the capable hands of Dino Fekaris. ‘LOVE TRACKS’ contains the million-unit selling chart topper, ‘I Will Survive’, originally a B-side to Gloria’s cover of ‘Substitute’. While ‘Substitute’ still obtained chart success it was ‘I Will Survive’, which quickly gained traction in the clubs, and as a result the record label deleted the 12 inch single and replaced the album version with the 12 inch version to boost album sales. Other notable tracks include the US Dance chart top 20 hit ‘Anybody Wanna Party’, which simultaneously climbed all the way to #16 on the US R&B Chart.
